I've left Bethlehem, and I feel free. I've left the girl I was supposed to be, and some day I'll be born.
The monsters are in your own head
The flower has opened, has been in the sun and is unafraid. I'm taking more chances; I'm bold and proud.
I think it's important to find the little things in everyday life that make you happy.
Far away, to an infinite world I escape. I'm clear and calm, I'm unafraid. Sunless days, in my sheltered milkyway. In Saturn's rings I feel no pain.

Just watching my cats can make me happy.
It's me who is my enemy
Me who beats me up
Me who makes the monsters
Me who strips my confidence.

I am the silent one inside. . . .
I am not my house, my car, my songs

Feminists were psyched that I had armpit hair
I think of my shows as family reunions. I give 100% every time. I just do. It's a huge therapeutic release. Also I love my touring family. And I love my audiences very much.
